I am starting a 55g saltwater tank which I only plan on it being a fowlr
. I am using some aragonite sand that I got out of a friends tank. I really like the sand but I am wanting to get a cleanup crew but am not sure what to get based on the fact that my sad is not really fine. For example I don't know if the cleaner packages on reef cleaners would thrive in my tank.
The pictures I attached are not that good but they will give a good indication of how course my sand is.
Also I bought a couple pieces of live rock to seed my base rock; my question is will my barren base rock eventually darken after time? Although I know patience is key, how long should I expect to wait before I may see the coralline algae start to spread?
Thanks for any advice and everyone's opinion is greatly appreciated!
